Sky Watch: Branching Out

(Click photo for larger version. Press Back button to return here.)

After the windy weather of a few days ago, this tree has been completely stripped of its leaves, allowing a view through its branches to the Pennine moorland in the distance.

Not a terribly marvellous composition, but the light was rather stunning that morning, as the mists cleared, so I thought that it was worth sharing.

The solitary bird sitting in the tree seems to add to the bareness of the branches!

Sky Watch is a regular weekly feature on this photo blog. It links with websites all over the world with the general theme each week of looking upwards. Please take the opportunity to visit some of these other sites. I hope some new visitors have found their way here today, watching the skies!


  1. I like this very much, composition and all. Winter gives the onlooker the opportunity to appreciate the skeletons of trees and the bareness of landscape.

  2. Snap!
    It suddenly happened, didn't it?
    I'm showing the same. Such a contrast to a few days ago.
    I can tell that the light was amazing for you.

  3. It's amazing how fast fall turns into winter, isn't it?

  4. The mist is wonderful, and I like the bird sitting there, determined not to let the coming of winter scare him away. Nice post for SWF.

  5. I like the bareness of the branches with the mistiness behind the tree. Nice. :) Have a great weekend.
